Wilder: I’ll definitely be fighting Tyson Fury next year

wilder56By Scott Gilfoid: American heavyweight talent Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31 KOs) foresees himself meeting up with British heavyweight Tyson Fury (22-0, 16 KOs) next year in a fight that Wilder believes will be a huge fight that would make promoters unnecessary.

Presumably, Wilder believes that Fury will win his next fight against Dereck Chisora on November 22nd, and then beat IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko after that. The Fury-Chisora fight is a WBO heavyweight eliminator bout with the winner becoming Wladimir’s WBO mandatory challenger.

Deontay to Fury: I dare you to send that contract

wilder6787By Scott Gilfoid: Unbeaten American heavyweight contender Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30 KO’s) seems to have gotten a little tired of Tyson Fury mouthing off on twitter, so he decided to fire back a salvo to give him a taste of his own medicine while at the same time urging him to get off his backside and send a contract over for him to fight.

The talented 6’7″ Deontay wants to get Fury in the ring so that he can knock him out and finish him as a major player in the heavyweight division. Steve Cunningham came close to doing the job on Fury last April in their fight in New York, but Fury was able to get up after being knocked flat in the 2nd round. Cunningham was too tired from throwing that one shot to do much more in the fight, but he came real close to putting the Fury hype to rest.

What would happen if the Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder fight happens?

fury54By Kyle Proctor: With the news that the British boxer Tyson Fury (21W-15KO-0D-0L) vs. the American boxer “The Bronze Bomber” Deontay Wilder (30W-30KO-0D-0L) could possibly happen next year, it would be a major risk for both fighters.

I see this fight been 60/40 in favor of Fury, because from what I have seen of Wilder, he holds the right hand back to get all of his punching power. If he lands this he could stop Fury, as he has been knocked down by a light puncher like Steve Cunningham. But Fury likes to wrestle his fighters and for a tall boxer he gets very close to them. I don’t see Wilder having the time to hold his right hand back and Fury could get a scrappy knockout like he did on Cunningham on Wilder.

Schaefer thinks Fury’s promoter has lost interest in Deontay fight

deontay50395By Scott Gilfoid: Heavyweight Deontay Wilder’s promoter Richard Schaefer says that Tyson Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessy has gone quiet about a fight between Fury and Deontay after initially showing interest in the match-up two days ago, according to RingTV. Schaefer says he hasn’t heard from Hennessy since and that he’s not returning his phone calls. Schaefer believes that Hennessy spoke to his matchmaker and he may have concluded that Deontay is way too dangerous for Fury to fight.

Schaefer said to RingTV “I tried to reach him [Hennessy] yesterday and he didn’t answer his phone or call me back. So what I think has happened is that he must have talked to his matchmaker and they must have realized that Tyson Fury has no chance, and I think they must have changed their minds all of a sudden…it has become very, very quiet.”

Tyson Fury wants Deontay Wilder next!

deontay755By Scott Gilfoid: With his his mouth watering fight against David Haye now likely permanently shelved due to Haye’s shoulder surgery, unbeaten Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) is ready to take the ultimate risk in facing the talented one-punch knockout artist Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30 KO’s) in a fight that Fury hopes will serve as a springboard to get him a title shot against one of the Klitschko brothers. In fact, Fury is hoping that one of the sanctioning bodies will agree to a Fury-Wilder fight as a heavyweight title eliminator bout.

Fury said on his twitter today: @BronzeBomber [Deontay Wilder] You’ve had banter with me and my promoter @HennessySports, so get someone to call Mick and lets give the fans a real fight!! @BronzeBomber you and me is the biggest and most exciting fight in world boxing!! You talk the talk @BronzeBomber, now it’s time to walk the walk!! @HennessySports February 8th, @Phones4uArena –

Deontay to Fury: It’s game over for you once I get the WBC title

deontay5698By Scott Gilfoid: Unbeaten American heavyweight Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30 KO’s) intends on finishing the Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) hype machine after Deontay picks up the WBC heavyweight title next year. Deontay, 28, says he’ll give Fury a title shot in order to knock him out. In other words, Deontay, 6’7″, won’t make Fury wait the way that Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko have done with him. He’s doing to give the 6’9″ Fury an immediate shot at his title so that he can expose him.

Deontay said on his twitter “Tyson Fury, come my friend, I will make it worth your while. Besides, once I get this WBC belt, it’s game over for you all!”

Deontay willing to fight Tyson Fury in the UK

WilderFirthaPC_HoganphotosBy Scott Gilfoid: American heavyweight Deontay Wilder (29-0, 29 KO’s) sees a fight between himself and Britain’s Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) as being inevitable in the future, and he’s willing to come to the UK to make the fight happen. Deontay expects to capture one of the world title belts in early 2014 against one of the Klitschko brothers. Once Deontay has one of the heavyweight world straps, he expects the fight against the 6’9″ Tyson Fury to take place.

However, a fight between Deontay and Fury would likely have to be an optional title defense for Deontay because Fury will almost surely lose by knockout to former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye next February in their scheduled fight, if it takes place at that time.

Fury’s promoter turned down Deontay Wilder fight, says Golden Boy Promotions

wilder99By Scott Gilfoid: Golden Boy Promotions made a stab at trying to line up a fight between unbeaten heavyweight talent Deontay Wilder (28-0, 28 KO’s) and undefeated British/Irish heavyweight Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s), but Golden Boy struck out after Fury’s promoter said he had other options for the 6’7” Fury.

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer said to ESPN “[Mick] Hennessy was saying that they [Fury] have other options and this and that and other excuses. They were not all that keen on it. It’s too bad.”

Yes, it is too bad. What a pity. A fight between Fury and the 6’7” Wilder would easily be the biggest fight in Fury’s career and it would be the first time he faced an opponent that could look him dead in the eye in the ring instead of staring up at him three to five inches.
